Authors: Wyssmüller I, Schaal K, Wolf S, Zinkernagel M Abstract BACKGROUND: It has previously been shown that the process of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) injections can lead to a significant increase of blood pressure. The aim of this study was to investigate whether this blood pressure increase was reproducible with repeated anti-VEGF injections. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with a systolic blood pressure of ≥ 180 mmHg during previous injections who were scheduled for further injections were asked to participate in this study. Systolic as well as diastolic blood pressu...
Authors: Boutou AK, Pitsiou G Abstract Introduction: Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is still a chronic disorder characterized by high morbidity and mortality. Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is another form of pulmonary hypertension (PH) for which pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) is the treatment of choice. However, not all patients are operable, while PH is often recurrent or persistent. Thus, for both disorders novel treatment options are urgently needed.Areas covered: This review describes the mechanism of action of riociguat, a soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) stimulator, with a dual m...

Okay, I'm not an epidemiologist or a virologist. But I do know something about those subjects, I'm a public health professor, and I am an expert in clinical communication and risk communication. So I'm going to offer some observations that I hope will help people keep this public health scare in proper perspective and maybe be of practical use.There are two important parameters we need to understand the risk caused by any communicable disease. I'm going to broadly say transmissibility, and the probability that exposure will lead to serious disease.We often see transmissibility represented as a single number, called R0 or &...
This study was performed in Zhongshan Hospital, Fudan University, China. 803 patients with hypertension were consecutively recruited from 2012 to 2015. All participants underwent routine biochemical measurements, including plasma renin activity (PRA) and plasma aldosterone concentration (PAC). In all patients with a PAC higher than 10 ng/dl, a saline perfusion test was conducted, and a CT scan or adrenal venous sampling was also performed if needed. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was conducted in all eGFR
